The trailer, which released on November 2, has upset Sikh community after one of the shots shows SRK wearing a Gatra Kirpan (Article of Sikh Faith).

BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa on Monday asked "Zero" movie director Aanand L. Rai and actor Shah Rukh Khan to remove an "objectionable" scene from the movie and urged Delhi Police to lodge a complaint against the two for "hurting" the sentiments of Sikhs. Sirsa has complained to CBFC as well.

In the complaint, Sirsa alleged that in the promo of the movie, actor Shah Rukh Khan has been shown wearing "Gatra Kirpan" (Article of Sikh Faith) in their movie promo which has created an outrage among Sikh community worldwide.

Sirsa has written in his complaint, "I have received a number of complaints from the Sikh Sangat for hurting the sentiments of the Sikhs by movie ZERO directed by Aanand L Rai". A statement by the film's PR agency, Spice, said, "We are writing on behalf of the makers of the Film, Zero". It reads, "Your concern is duly noted and we wish to respectfully clarify that the film does not depict a Kirpan. The filmmakers have been careful not to hurt the feelings of any community including the Sikh community". On the other hand, Katrina Kaif is a ravishing superstar who loves the bottle and Bauua equally, it seems. And now, actor - producer Riteish Deshmukh, who was releasing his Marathi venture Mauli on the same date with Zero (December 21) has agreed to change the release date, which means Zero will now enjoy a solo release.
